College World Series
If the runner gets to the base before a fielder grabs the balland holds it up in the air, thebatting team scores a run. After I lost my vision, I thought I was done playing sports. The fact that I was able to find the sport I loved again and be able to play it, and not just play it, but compete again, really drew me to this sport. Beep baseball allows the Oklahoma native to reconnect with one of his favorite feelings: After he lost his sight, Thaxton dropped out of college and returned to Oklahoma, where he struggled with his new, unexpected reality.
Moving to Boston and finding beep baseball and the teammates who came along with it helped him feel understood and supported, he said.
Finding that has been truly amazing. His team consists of people with varying experiences, Thaxton said — some were born blind, while others have the same disease he has and lost their sight gradually. Since joining the team, Thaxton returned to college, graduated and started a full-time job as a business analyst. Both were first introduced to the sport when their son-in-law joined the team a handful of years ago.
As for the Beavers winning it all, I just think Oregon State is going to be hungrier than ever to win this year after having one of the best seasons in college baseball history fall short last year in the semi-finals. They have a ton of talent coming back and I think this team plays on fire all year again but finishes it off with a College World Series title.
The Oregon State Beavers look to be the most well rounded team heading into the season. The depth of their pitching and a strong offensive lineup should propel them to the top.
